Not sure it's a crawler or cloaked exactly as the rDNS is ycar1.mobile.bf1.yahoo.com and ycar6.mobile.bf1.yahoo.com

I think it's possibly a Samsung phone.

It looks like a Samsung Smooth phone using the NetFront browser.

Probably so.

I actually had someone try to cruise my site yesterday with a phone and in the UA was the word Java. Can't imagine how many sites block them. Sadly I'm not unblocking that one for one visitor.

Can you remember what came after the Java? My htaccess says "Java/" -- and a quick riffle through logs says that the usual robotic "Java" UA is "Java/1.6.0_\d+" where the number after the lowline varies. But if you block "Java/1.6.0" then someone will come along with a Java/1.7. so the slash alone was a compromise.

Most things on a smart phone are written in Java, including the apps. While it lends its name to many tools many of us don't want crawling our sites, Java is just another programing language.
